News To Befuddle Larry Kramer

From Vancouver:

The dedicated HIV/AIDS ward at St. Paul’s Hospital has closed due to a lack of patients.

“It was not that long ago that HIV/AIDS was a death sentence and those who came to this ward at St. Paul’s were here to die,” said Dr. Julio Montaner, director for the BC Centre for Excellence in HIV/AIDS. “Today, ward 10C will provide treatment, support and care for those living with HIV-related issues. We have worked hard to make this day happen and I commend everyone who has supported our efforts.”
